MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Grapefruit and resins dominate this Double IPAs lightly honeyed malts, in an otherwise effervescent and rather drinkable example.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A generous head of foam settles atop the hazy pale amber.
-Carbonation is higher than average for the style, which helps drinkability.
-The hops are way more resinous than fruity in this one.
-Bitterness is salient. Resinous, but also a tad vegetal
-The malts play second fiddle, which is to be expected. Moreover, they do not dwell in caramelized sugars here, which helps the hops to stand out more.
-The yeast pour obfuscates most of the subtleties in the flavor profile. And theres a lot of yeast in the bottle...

Stern hazy golden, bright with a slick greasy head. Clean sting of malt, not overly brisk with the ABV but slides in a decent few wedges of grapefruit and sanguiello. Kinda candyfloss sweetness. Finishes cooling sweetness and a little bit cheescake/cream cheese linger. Brrrrrrrring.

VsXsV (4387) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle. Almost clear golden liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of mango, pine, citrus, marmalade, pineapple and light bread. Taste is dry and medium to high bitter with notes of pineapple, mango, pine and light caramel. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Really nice, probably even better fresh. Great hoppiness.

drsordr (2577) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle pour hazy dark gold with moderate white head. Nose resin and dank but also papaya and kiwi. Taste big bitter bite up front then some fruit hop. As it warms more sweet malt and juicy hop comes out. Mid palate mix dank hop and sweet malt then late alcohol. Long bitter finish. The juicy hop seems to be battling with astringent /alcohol flavors. Much better just off room temp.

beersighted (134) - - NOV 16, 2014
This double IPA pours a dark gold color with a tiny white head. Nose of pungent hops dominate. Resinous bitterness confounds the tastebuds with a bit of a malty backbone; a medium body. This beer is bold, but lacks a true identity in and of itself.
